Pent-up anger channelled into a feisty Rock ‘n’ Roll attitude. This is what AC ANGRY stands for. Metal Hammer Germany described their sound as «comparable to early Wonderfools, coupled with desert riff grooves and a touch of late Turbonegro». Their roots lie clearly in the classic Rock ’n’ Metal of the 80‘s, in groups like Motörhead or Zodiac Mindwarp And The Love Reaction and they succeed in including their influences from the last 15 years in an exciting way, as bands like Danko Jones and Turbonegro took over. With this spellbinding mixture they set themselves apart from the rampant 70‘s Vintage Rock Revival and go their own way.
Under the old name Taletellers the four-piece already made a name for themselves in the world-wide metal scene with the albums ”Detonator“ and ”Radicalizer“. In 2009 they went on a European tour with Grave Digger and Alestorm and they supported such notables as Molly Hatchet, Sacred Reich, Uriah Heep or Astral Doors. Along with it the second album ”Radicalizer“ earned a Top 40 chart position in the US College Radio Charts. After a short break the band decided to change the name to something more suitable for their straight heavy Rock ‘n’ Roll – AC ANGRY – and since last year the musicians surrounding the charismatic singer Alan Costa have been hitting the gas again big time! Highly acclaimed shows as support for Danish rockers D-A-D and Ozzy‘s former sidekick Zakk Wylde and his Black Label Society and most of all the tour with Warrior Soul in November 2012, which led them through Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands, were celebrated by fans and press alike.
On October 25th 2013 AC ANGRY’s debut album “Black Denim“ – produced by Phil Hillen (Powerwolf, Parachutes, The Vision Bleak, Vendetta …) at SU2 Studio – will finally be released as Digipak CD through the German label Dust On The Tracks Records. Iconic illustrator Jan Meininghaus (U.D.O., Bolt Thrower, Brainstorm …) is responsible for the perfectly fitting artwork. AC ANGRY are demonstrating with a total of ten songs how a dirty Rock ’n’ Roll album is supposed to sound! Catchy tunes like the pounding opener “Booze Horse“, the intriguing half-ballad “It‘s Good To Be Bad“ or the fat speed metal riffs-driven “Rock ’n’ Roller Roller Rolla!“ are evidence that singer and guitarist Alan Costa, his congenial lead guitarist Stefan Kuhn, as well as the tight rhythm section, consisting of bassist Dennis Kirsch and drummer Sascha Waack will truly stir up the international scene! The live shows have already started in late April when AC ANGRY were hitting the road for a mini-tour with guitar virtuoso Michael Schenker (MSG) before going on a three-week European tour in June as support act for the Hard ‘n‘ Heavy legend Saxon and several concerts with Canadian cult Metal band Anvil in August. In autumn AC ANGRY have been confirmed for some shows with Ohrenfeindt and further tour dates will soon follow.
What the press says about AC ANGRY:
Rock Hard (#314): Another few words on the supporting act: They’ve made a good catch with AC ANGRY. With their excellent mix of Power Rock, Heavy Metal and Aussie-Rock ’n’ Roll the upcoming quartet arrives properly.
Medazzarock.ch (Juni 2013): The boys were the perfect opening act that understood how to get people involved and brought at operating temperature. Rock ‘n’ Roll mood in the best way.
Musikreviews.de (Januar 2013): Probably one of the five best bands in Germany, when it comes to adding sound to greasy leather jackets – you have to check this out!
